Auntieshelly, long time no see! And nope, this was my first crack at making the cookies, I was sort of experimenting. I think they would freeze beautifully though.
Dina, glad they worked out for you. I think craisins would be expecially yummy in these. No nuts for us as there are too many allergies in the family darn it, but I think that would be awesome too.
Since these cookies are so dense, I think I would be careful about adding stuff like flax without lowering the amount of oatmeal. The oatmeal was my "fiber content" so I think straight subbing of 1/2 cup oats for flax would work well.
I kind of over did the nutmeg last time. Definitely not more than a tsp needed. And I sprinkled cinnamon sugar on top to pretty them up and it really perked them up.
